Why is a water bath necessary?
Water baths are so important for certain dishes. For this recipe, in particular, cooking the ramekins in a water bath allows the dish to cook evenly to ensure that no parts end up over or undercooked.
In short, using a water bath for this recipe will ensure that your blueberry crumble comes out PERFECT!

If you want to store your breakfast crumbles in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week, be sure to keep the ramekins in a large airtight container or tightly wrap them with foil. Consume within 3 days.

Recommended Kitchen Materials and Tools
- Mixing Bowls: Have a couple on hand before beginning.
- Electric Mixer: Using an electric mixer will ensure that the ingredients are mixed properly. Plus, it saves time and LOTS of energy!
- Ramekins: Individual ramekins are used for each serving of this yummy blueberry crumble. You will need 8.

Ingredient Swaps and Substitutions
Classic Monk Fruit Sweetener
If you only have Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener on hand, no need to fret. You can use the Golden in place of the Classic, and your recipe will still turn out perfectly! Simply make the swap at a 1:1 ratio.
Additionally, erythritol, Swerve, and Truvia can be used in place of the monk fruit sweetener at a 1:1 ratio. If you would like to use stevia, be sure to check the brand’s website for measurement conversions (stevia is not a 1:1 substitution for monk fruit sweetener).
Melted Coconut Oil
I personally prefer refined coconut oil, as it has less coconut flavor than unrefined coconut oil, but either will work perfectly here.
Another option for swapping coconut oil is to use butter. Use a 1:1 ratio, but please note that the consistency may be slightly altered.
Though this recipe is centered around blueberries, I know that some people prefer other types of berries! If you’ve been reading through this recipe thinking “wow, this would taste GREAT with some raspberries,” then I’m talking to you. Feel free to swap the fruit as you see fit. Substitute at a 1:1 ratio, but note that the carb content will change.
